Nau mai haere mai ki te kura o Richmond. We welcome visits to view our play based learning approach to teaching and learning, and our implementation of Mana Enhancement to enhance student wellbeing, insight, problem solving and positive change in behaviour. We provide each of our 130 RICH KIDS with their own iPad to capture and support their learning.

We have moved away from ‘traditional’ classroom environments to innovative learning spaces. Our RICH STAFF work collaboratively to deliver ‘our’ curriculum and instilling our RICH VALUES of Pride, Respect, Responsibility, Language and Skills.

“Richmond Primary School has been selected as an Apple Distinguished School for 2017 & 2018, a two-year designation. Congratulations on being recognised as an exemplary learning environment for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence”.

Our ERO review in December 2015 was fantastic, and highlights were: “Students learn in culturally and digitally rich environments, in ways that support their sense of ownership, confidence and pride in learning. School leaders and teachers promote relational trust and partnerships for learning.”
